BCS - The real bowl games

Most college football fans are disgusted with the BCS and would rather see a playoff...realistically that is not going to happen because of money, the bowls, and college presidents...

So, since the BCS is going to stay, it would be nice if we had the 10 best teams play in the BCS instead of having an automatic bid if you are conference champion...for instance, this year, the Big East and ACC conference champs, Cincinnati and Virginia Tech, do not belong in these elite bowls...

On Saturday, ABC Sports Craig James was correct in saying that the top 10 ten BCS teams should make the bowls...even if it means that 3 teams from a conference may get in and some conferences may not have a conference champion who is worthy...he went on to say, that all the major confernces would still share in the money even if a conference does not get a representative in the BCS...this would set a standard instead of allowing teams with 3 or 4 losses to get into one of these primetime games...

If the BCS was done correctly, here should be the match-ups...
BCS Title Game
Florida vs. Oklahoma

Rose Bowl
Southern Cal vs. Penn State - this match-up is really going to happen...

Fiesta Bowl
Texas vs. Texas Tech - the nation would love to see a rematch since the last game was decided on the last play...heck, why not start where the last game was left off...

Sugar Bowl
Alabama vs. Utah - this match-up is really going to happen...

Orange Bowl
Ohio State vs. Boise State - how can a team go 12-0 and be in the Top 10 of the BCS and not make a BCS bowl?????....
